Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

We shall take up order No. 18,
Bill No. 92, to amend the Income War Tax Act. If the ex-Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe), in order that he may more adequately discuss the principle of the measure, so desires, a motion will be made to rescind the second reading and we shall proceed with that. If, on the other hand, the hon. gentleman thinks it is possible to discuss the principle of the measure while the house is in committee, we shall proceed in that way. I think the bill was advanced a stage, perhaps through a misunderstanding for which I must assume responsibility, because I said distinctly that my hon. friend would be given the fullest opportunity, regardless of the advance made on the order paper, to discuss the measure.
